Arrive Partners with AllMart Marketplace to Launch its

Smart Mailbox Solution in Antigua

Autonomous delivery testing expected to follow in second half of 2024

 

VANCOUVER, BC and INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- February 8, 2024 – InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Bruush Oral Care Inc. (Nasdaq: BRSH) ("Brüush") announced today that its pending merger partner, Arrive Technology Inc. ("Arrive"), a technology company focused on facilitating the last inch of the last-mile for autonomous delivery, has signed an agreement with AllMart Marketplace ("AllMart") to initially deploy up to 25 Arrive smart mailboxes to facilitate secure deliveries on the island nation of Antigua.

 

AllMart, an online retailer currently making approximately 120,000 deliveries per year to consumers in Antigua will offer customers, by the month of May, the option for 'secure delivery' in addition to the current choices of 'leave it at my door' or 'hand it to me'.

 

"We're very pleased to add this improved service to our clients, who sometimes cannot be at home to receive deliveries and are forced to contend with damage from weather, animals or other issues that can occur when a package is simply left at your door," said Andrew Doumith, AllMart's Head of Operations. "We look forward to our partnership with Arrive leading to further improvements, such as drone delivery, in the future."

 

AllMart consumers will initially share use of the Arrive smart mailboxes. Customers will receive unique personal identification numbers, so only they can access the mailbox to retrieve their orders, with Arrive's proprietary technology ensuring accurate deliveries. More Arrive mailboxes will be added over time as demand increases, Doumith said.

 

Arrive CEO Dan O'Toole said the deployment of Arrive mailboxes in Antigua results from Arrive's recent acquisition of Airbox Technologies Inc. ("Airbox") and its patent portfolio. Airbox had a pre-existing relationship with AllMart but had yet to begin facilitating deliveries.

 

"We acquired Airbox to enhance our own, first-position patent portfolio but also to speed up our deployment plans," O'Toole said. "Moderate regulations and more open skies make Antigua an ideal testing ground and will quickly demonstrate to the world how our Mailbox-as-a-Service platform and autonomous delivery will transform the last mile of package delivery."

 

As deployment of Arrive's smart mailboxes is being executed over the coming months, O'Toole noted his team is also working to add autonomous delivery to AllMart's delivery options. "We're hoping to expand the number of units on the ground, delivery modes and service options very quickly," he said.

 

AllMart is a subsidiary of ACT Antigua, which sells a wide array of consumer goods including food, alcohol, medicine, tools and home décor. It currently offers island-wide, fast on-demand or scheduled order delivery via human drivers. Autonomous delivery could hasten the delivery time, provide a secure space for the items, and enhance efficiency as drivers would no longer have to search for specific apartments or remote locations.
